Post never goes away or completes

Postby Biship » Fri Mar 23, 2018 10:34 am

I have a post that is in the download queue and it will not complete or assemble.
There is zero network traffic, so NBP must have everything it needs.
How the heck do I attach logs & images.

Or not. I had one yesterday. RAR set, all the PAR blocks were good but it wouldn't unrar. I looked closer and the first RAR hadn't been posted with the set. You might have to hit the + and look at it close.

1 - Does quickpar like it?

2 - Can you unrar it with WinRAR?

Ah ok, so 99.99% of the time I download rar files, which unrar to folder I set.
This MKV looks like it will stay in the newsgroup folder.

I'm using Sonarr, which then picks up the files from the unrar folder, but as this file never got there, Sonarr is still waiting for it.

So when will this entry ever leave the Downloads tab?
Do I have to write a script to automatically move this file (to the unrar folder) - or is there a way to do this in NBP?

Does it have any PAR files? It looks like Newsbin doesn't want to process it because it doesn't know if it's good or it wants to repair it and doesn't have any pars. Files don't get moved to the unrar folder unless Newsbin verifies them with pars.

If it's none of the above then it becomes a "I don't know". The NZB for this should be in the NZB's folder in the data folder. If you want to email it to me at ts@newsbin.com, I'll take a look.

Emailed.
I also have the debug log file if you want it.
No pars. Just a MKV and some txt/nfos.

Without pars, they never get "Unrared" without "UnRAR" (even on naked files) they never get sent to the unrar folder or the completed folder.

If more files are going to be this way, meaning no pars, I might need to make code changes.

Do you have a way to check if everything from the NZB is successfully & completely saved to the newsgroup folder and them move *those* files to the unrar folder?
I've only seen this a few times previously, but until recently I've done all downloading through your search - and now I've switched to sonarr & radarr - so I don't know how common this will be.

There's no way to do it now, as I said, "code changes". Basically this style NZB throws away all the good things that usenet has grown in the past years. With no pars, you can't fix or even check the download so, I'd have to implement some "if it's an NZB and doesn't have pars and seems to have completely downloaded even if I can't check it, pretend it unrared and send it to the unrar folder" kinda code.

I don't think this is very common yet. Most NZB's I've seen have at least one PAR file. One is enough to check though not enough to repair.

Yeah I understand that.
I just found another. I guess one of my (~10) nzb index sites has users posting these crappy files & NZB.
I suppose I will work out which it is and disable it. (or write a scheduled vbs to look for and move the files).
If you ever implement a fall back catcher for these I'll give it a whirl.
Thanks for looking into it.

It's not going to make 6.80 but could be in the next one. I already noted it.

One more thing, is there a list of API commands I can use to communicate with NPB using its remote NZB interface?

Remote API is here:

http://help.newsbin.com/index.php/Versi ... rface_Spec

I haven't tested it in a long time, can't guarantee it is 100% working with 6.80. Feel free to let us know if you find anything broken.

Sorry, I realize this should be in the beta forum.
I think you've fixed this in 5055 - thank you very much.
Any chance you can remove the .nzb at the end of the folder name?
Sonarr and Radarr literally won't import the files in the folder as the .nzb causes a parsing exception.

Sure I can look into it.
